Re: Hiking Apps (GPS based navigation online/offline)

View Post
Answering my own question:
So thanks all for the advice. In the end I have plumped for ViewRanger.

There are many sites around (e.g. where you can view hikes others have done and it is really easy to download the gpx file and then upload it into ViewRanger using their website. Then a simple sync and voila...the map is then on your phone.

I am sure there are lots of other choices but the ability to easily import walks from all over the internet makes it so easy to use.
Too late then, but I was going to mention the hiking version of an app I use für cycling. Mapmyride allows rides to be shared, copied and edited, and I particularly like the ability to show a climb and descent profile. I've not actually used mapmyhike , but I can imagine it ticking all your boxes here too.
